Wine & Spirits Magazine Presents The 3rd Annual Top of the List Tasting

An amazing NYC wine event for all of my wine lovers and yet ANOTHER reason to sign up for a free newsletter from BlackboardEats.com to get the best deals on food and drink! Should be fun!

From BlackboardEats (exclusive discount):

Wine & Spirits Magazine is holding its 3rd Annual Top of the List Tasting on Tuesday, May 10, at the Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC. This top-notch walk-around wine-and-food tasting event features great vino from more than 99 wineries (wineries listed below) and bites from 10 hot restaurants, including ABC Kitchen, Ai Fiori, and Ciano—plus oysters from Grand Central Oyster Bar, cheese from Artisanal, chocolate from La Maison du Chocolat, and lots more.

Tickets, normally a bargain at $65 per person, are being offered for to BBE subscribers exclusively for 30% off. And the ticket price even includes a one-year subscription to Wine & Spirits Magazine! But you have to act fast, as the discounted tickets are limited in quantity, and a passcode does not guarantee a ticket or discount!

Virtual Tastings

It’s always nice to know what to taste in a wine, how to properly taste, descriptive wine words etc. However, through text it sometimes sounds all the same and confusing, which is why more and more bloggers/experts are starting to go virtual with their wine tastings making it more interactive and experiential for YOU!  I’ve seen great examples and platforms of this in WineLibraryTV (now DailyGrape.com), Snooth.com, and of course VineTalk which is an actual TV show!  Below is a scheduled virtual tasting of the Frei Brothers Reserve that you can enjoy even if your not in the market to make a trip to Wine Country anytime soon, here you’ll be able to expereince coast-to-coast toasting and tasting!  Snooth.com periodically host’s these virtual interviews which is a great way to learn the speak of wine!  Check the brother’s out on April 20th at 9pm EST.  They even give you a link to buy the wines to join in!!  Cheers!
